Temporary Changes to CYP Emergency Departments
The Royal Free Hospital and University College Hospital’s children and young people’s (CYP) emergency departments and general acute inpatient beds are temporarily closed over Christmas and the winter season. Please refer paediatric patients needing urgent and emergency care to Whittington Hospital, Barnet Hospital, North Middlesex University Hospital or other alternative hospitals.
Parents and carers are being asked to contact NHS 111 first, either by phone or online, to be directed to the best service for them. These temporary arrangements allow the NHS to focus resources and ensure CYP services are not subject to disruption should there be an increase in demand due to the pandemic.
